Design Approach

Intentionally designed into our environments are opportunities for daily success stories in the lives of our elders. Inherent in the design of each unique project are thoughtful applications of therapeutic and prosthetic architectural features. These design strategies exercise and strengthen remaining skills as well as support and compensate for declining cognitive or physical abilities. DPA’s applied research approach translates directly into greater independence and autonomy for all residents and greater competency in higher-acuity residents.

DPA approaches each design project to meet the tastes and sensibilities of the emerging Silent Generation and Baby Boomer markets and their families. DPA continues to deliver award-winning projects that exceed market expectations as well as complement a variety of our clients’ business models, operational goals and efficient care delivery.
